Colloquium announcement and call for papers

In November, the University of Abertay Dundee in conjunction with the

International Colloquium on Digital Heritage and Preservation in its
newly-opened Cultural Centre.

The colloquium will run alongside an International Exhibition of Digital
Heritage and Preservation, featuring exhibits from, amongst others, the
Universities of Stanford and Venice. The event will provide stimulating
presentations from a broad range of cultural sectors and will give
delegates the opportunity to hear presentations from five leading
figures in the field.

Call for Papers

Deadline for proposals: 31st August 2005

The colloquium committee invites proposals for papers on any area of
digital heritage or preservation, and from all cultural sectors:
museums, libraries, archives, archaeological monuments and sites, live
performances, exhibitions and of course, the World Wide Web.

In particular we welcome proposals that seek to comment on applications
of digital technology to the protection of heritage resources (including
the virtual recreation of lost resources), or which apply
cross-disciplinary thinking to heritage and preservation. Possible
topics for consideration include, but are not restricted to:

Digitising cultural heritage
Augmented reality
Digital libraries and digital documents
Virtual architecture and construction
Applications of music technology to heritage preservation
3D modelling and animation
Digital photography
Web and audiovisual archiving
Haptic interfaces and blurring the real-virtual boundary
Displaying virtual and intangible exhibits
Digital technology and curatorship
Working models and case studies
Interdisciplinary perspectives

Individual presentations should be no more than twenty minutes in
duration. Proposals should take the form of a title followed by an
abstract of not more than 250 words. Deadline for submission is Friday
31st August 2005. Decisions will be notified in early September 2005.
Finished papers for inclusion in the on-line proceedings should be
